Summary

In 2015, world leaders adopted the SDGs. Leaders and CSOs are committed to work to end modern slavery once and for all - Target 8.7. Every year humans are trafficked in and out of the country. Join us to combat this terrible crime and reach those in need and disrupt the networks that prey on vulnerable people. By joining forces with us, we will help destroy the root causes and drivers of this horrible practices and put these victims first.

Challenge

Many children trafficked, forced into prostitution, forced into marriages, migration and labour, have had their basic freedom and dignity stripped from them by traffickers. These are our sisters, brothers, mothers and fathers, and children and they all deserve to be treated with love and respect. Because of this, their freedom has been seized, rights abused and misused inhumanly. ChildHelp will use its helpline, gather data, work human trafficking cases, identify victims, assist survivors, train

Solution

We need supports, donations and partners to help us locate and destroy human traffickers operations and strengthen victims' safety net, break the chains, provide rehabilitative services, set an helpline to respond to victims immediately, raise awareness in communities to address, prevent and work human trafficking cases. We will conduct investigations of trafficking in hot spots, execute the raids, refer cases to appropriate authorities for immediate actions and put the children in safer havens.

Long-Term Impact

ChildHelp's collected data, reports and lessons learnt from such activities will be disseminated and shared with donors and organisations targeting SDGs 8.7 to end slavery, prostitution, forced marriages, migration and labour for replication and up scaling to other communities. ChildHelp will work with other like minded organisations, the government, stakeholders, communities and businesses to end such horrible practices. It is not just about treating the symptom; it's about curing the disease.
